82nd Annual McKee Student Art Contest & Exhibition
Mar 21, 2013 - May 5, 2013
The Haggin Museum’s annual McKee Student Art Contest & Exhibition—the longest-running student art competition in the United States—returns on March 21, for the first time including digital short films.
The exhibition was first envisioned 82 years ago by The Haggin Museum’s founding patron, Robert T. McKee, whose goal was to encourage students by providing a public venue for their artworks.
The 2013 exhibition, on display March 21 through May 5, contains 1,322 entries from 67 schools in San Joaquin County.
NEW THIS YEAR: DIGITAL SHORTS
This is the first year of a new category in the contest. High school students were invited to submit short digital films, and six were submitted. The shorts will be shown in one of the galleries and special prizes will be awarded.
